About

I'm a graduate of the Web Development Immersive program at General Assembly, where I learned full-stack development with a focus on Ruby, Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, and CSS3.

Previously I worked as a communications strategist, web content producer, and multimedia designer.

I live and work in Washington, D.C. I'm a former Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner serving ANC4B in Washington, D.C.'s Ward 4. I've written about the District for Washington City Paper and Greater Greater Washington. I'm interested in using my technical and communications skills to solve issues and help citizens engage with the city.
